FTX frooze some accounts soon after Kroll revealed on Aug. 25 that a cyberthreat actor had targeted a T-Mobile US account belonging to one of its employees. The company described the incident as a “highly sophisticated ‘SIM swapping’ attack” and explained:

“Specifically, T-Mobile, without any authority from or contact with Kroll or its employee, transferred that employee’s phone number to the threat actor’s phone at their request.”

Kroll explained then that the attacker apparently gained access to some files containing personal information of bankruptcy claimants in the cases of FTX, Blockfi, and Genesis. Kroll assured that necessary precautions had being implemented to secure the affected accounts.
